Introducing Luken and Linda…these two will be tying the knot at The French Farmhouse Venue on December 12, 2020, and we are so excited!!
How Did you and Luken Meet?
Luken and I met in college at TCU. I am two grades older than him (and he never lets me forget it) so our paths didn’t cross until the second semester of Luken’s freshman year. One of my best guy friends was teammates with Luken; so we were introduced to each other one night at our friend’s house. Luken and another guy were about to leave the house to run the Kroger, as they walked out the door I jokingly shouted out “bring me back some chocolate!”. The Other guy just kept walking, but Luken walked back into the house and asked me what kind I wanted. Sure enough, he came back with a king-size reese’s for me. It was then that I knew I was in Love, just kidding, but kind of not really. We started off as friends and it grew from there!
How did Luken Propose?
Luken Proposed this January at Adriatica Village in McKinney. My family used to own a restaurant in this area so Luken and I would often take walks around Adriatica when we first started dating. He claims that when we first started going on these walks that he thought “If I am going to propose to this girl, this is where I’ll do it.” I’m not sure if that’s true but it sure sounds romantic so I’ll take it! Almost four years later, that’s where Luken got down on one knee. Then we went back to my dad’s house where Luken gathered our closest family and friends for a surprise engagement party. It was the sweetest way to celebrate.
Why did you and Luken choose The French Farmhouse Venue?
We were referred to The French Farmhouse by our pilates instructor (shoutout Kay). We toured some other venues, and with no luck, we decided to go check out The French Farmhouse. It stood out from all the other venues the moment we drove in. Let me set the scene. We pulled in to this sweet hardworking-man building a fence (it was the dad/husband of the property). He kindly pointed us in the right direction of the house we were headed to. We pulled up to the house and this bubbly girl jumped right out of the front door and greeted us with an excited “Hey y’all!” that made you feel like you already knew her for years. This was Kelsey (the daughter/venue manager). Then we went into the house and met Michelle(the mother/venue designer). To no surprise, Michelle was as comforting and welcoming as her daughter and husband. She thoroughly explained all of her visions in such a way that had us wrapped in every word she had to say. Even though the venue isn’t fully built yet, I had not even the slightest hesitation trusting them with my special day. There’s no doubt it will be absolutely gorgeous. But even better than that, we can’t wait to spend our day with this genuine and just fun-to-be-around family. It was a no-brainer that this was the venue for us.
What are you and Lken most excited about getting married?
Luken and I are most excited to get married to just get to share all our moments together. We can’t wait to take all those future steps together and continue to grow and be challenged and have fun. I’m also sure it’ll be fun to say “my husband.” lol
We can’t wait for these two to say “I Do” at The French Farmhouse Venue on December 12, 2020!
